About
Renowned for its iconic Fofoti trees, this pristine beach beckons a trip. There are low-rise hotels and beach resorts lining the shores, but the beach is mostly quiet. The waters are also relatively calm in the designated swimming zones. Boat tours and water activities like snorkeling and jet skiing are popular here as well. If you're lucky, you may even spot turtles nesting or hatching on the shore between March and September. Eagle Beach is also a popular wedding photoshoot location—many newlyweds come to snap their wedding photos against the blissful Caribbean waters. – Tripadvisor

    Beautiful beach
    First time in a Aruba as a solo traveler. Eagle beach was my first stop really beautiful beach. Came every day to get a good spot under the umbrella trees. Recommend coming early to get you a spot under the Parasols that are posted through out the beach

    Lovely beach with white sands and marked off swimming areas. Need to arrive early to get a Palapa for shade. The sun is strong so use lots of reef safe suntan lotion. Chairs are available to rent.

    Eagle beach review
    Stayed at an AirBnB very close to eagle beach. Very nice beach- beautiful water, fine sand and not too busy. Wife and I walked on the paved walkway near road in AM and hit the beach later in day. Head south away from eagle and palm beach for even more seclusion.

    Beautiful pristine beach
    What can I say this beach is awesome. Clear aqua water, talcum powder soft sand. (By the way you can’t take any home with you or shells or you will get a fine) enjoy the spotless clean area and walking looking at the fish. There are jet ski rentals available, and parasailing for the adventurous type.

    Beautiful beach
    We went to Aruba on a Royal Caribbean cruise and visited this beach, it is one of the most beautiful beaches we have visited. While there we had lunch at a fast food restaurant Aruba Blue Beach bar and terrace, all very tasty. Back to the ship we take public transport, a mini van of those that pass by constantly.

    Awesome beach
    This broad, long beach never seems crowded, with plenty of room for everyone. A diversity of people are engaged in many activities. It is a perfect beach for strolling along the water's edge, especially in the morning when the winds are not as strong. Aruba does not allow individual vendors to walk along the beach and try and sell items, so the beach is hassle free. There are a few kiosks with vendors for watersports. There seem to be fewer vendors for umbrellas now, so finding shade if you're a visitor is a challenge. Some of the palapas are staked out before 7 am. Come early if you want parking for a car. Areas for swimming are marked to exclude watercraft. The beach slopes gradually into the water for easy entry, especially for kids. Calm, clean water. No big waves. No seaweed. Not much to see when snorkeling, though. People of all ages from many different places enjoy this beach. Everyone was respectful of the space of others. Swimwear ranged from my g-string to some trendy thongs and cheeky bikinis, and all manner of styles for fun in the sun. Good place to be yourself and enjoy your vacation. The summer brings much stronger winds. A breeze of 20 to 30 kmh provides cooling, but when wind gusts reach 40 to 60 kmh it becomes unpleasant getting sandblasted. At least the wind gusts are not constant. The fine, powdery white sand doesn't get too hot. Good to see loggerhead turtle nesting sites marked off and protected.

    One of our favourite beaches
    We love this beach for all that it is, calm blue waters excellent for swimming and soft white sand. My wife and I go every year and we are never disappointed, the beach is certainly beautiful. It can get busy but we always find a spot regardless of the time day. Wether hotel/beach staff, other tourists or island residents we find people are respectful and mind their own business. But we mostly love this beach because we can enjoy our vacation hassle-free of beach vendors and no one bothers us, we can socialize as much as we want or we can have our privacy, this is why we keep coming back to Eagle Beach.

    Relaxation at its Best
    Best beach in the World. Even at home ( New York), I rather wait all year around to get here. The water is warm and clear most of the time and relaxing. The best Sundown picture Perfect you can have on a Portafolio or a phone screen. It's unbelievable.

    Beautiful beach with great views
    This beautiful white sand beach offers amazing views, lots of space so you don't feel crowded and various bars etc to enjoy your day. Trees provide shade for free, the sun loungers and umbrellas cost a lot more. However, we spent a while just relaxing and people watching.

Jersey and Carlos were THE BEST! Funny, happy, entertaining, thorough, and grateful. Lots of history in his talks. And they changed a flat in only moments. Experienced and polite. We enjoyed our tour very much.

Calm waters with no seaweed. Not very many dining options on the water. Gorgeous sunset and safe relaxed atmosphere. Will be visiting again.

Eagle Beach had the softest sand and was beautiful. The water was three or four different shades of blues and turquoise each day. Since it is on the low rise side of the island, it was peaceful and relaxing. However, when the waves kicked up, it was fun to bounce around in them. Valuable lessons - bring an insulated cup for your drinks (everything gets warm quick) and get yourself a pool noodle to float in the water. We will definitely return.

One of the most beautiful beaches and it wasn’t crowded. We went on a Saturday afternoon. Sand was so soft, beautiful water and a quiet beach.

Beautiful white sand beach to catch a lot of sun and play. Take the time to walk the entire beach! Go on a jet ski and visit other beaches and resorts.

When you get off the cruise ship and take a taxi to Eagle Beach they will typically drop you off at Cocoa Beach Bar area. All the cruise passengers are typically directed to this beach by the taxi drivers. Once you get there, there are no chairs or umbrellas available. Best to go down to La Cabana Beach across from that hotel there were plenty of chairs available at 11:00 when we arrived

Second time on Eagle it’s worth the effort. Top tip stay up near the Fofoti trees there’s not much to see past there. The water is crystal clear & a beautiful hues of blue as you’d expect in the Caribbean. We’re glad we’ve been however were surprised by the lack of facilities.

Beautiful beach with nice calm waters. The people keep it clean and provide comfortable chaise lounges. I felt so comfortable that I fell asleep on the chaise lounge. And unlike other beaches I’ve been to, it wasn’t that crowded and you felt like you had enough room to enjoy the water and the land. Definitely recommend this beach to check out if you are in Aruba.
